Best Albums of 2013: 20 - Churn Milk Joan
20. 8 Black Postcards - Churn Milk Joan
Churn Milk Joan have had a busy year, but for me their finest moment was this brilliant part-improvised five track collection they recorded in their Hebden Bridge studios.
They quote this from my review on the album's bandcamp page: "...another stunner... a taut percussive backdrop against which sparse guitar patterns interweave, Tago Mago-esque musical interludes rise and fall and something not unrelated to a funk vibe drags you into a sonic blender into which sounds are tossed before coming out of the other end entirely transformed, as indeed is the listener."
Couldn't have put it better myself. Oh.
Get it as NYOP here.
